Shamima’s a loose woman

Just watching today’s edition of loose women and it’s simple. Shamima Begum has become a loose woman. She has gotten lost as well.

It’s an unfortunate example of how badly teenagers can miscalculate their options once they leave home.

Kids just cannot imagine what life is like without all the safety nets our civilisation provides for chilren who simply stay at home and get that central heating and the regular meals and that roof over their heads.

Some get hot-headed listen to groomers online and go off into the unknown to find they end up on sheer horror.

I alwas think schools should teach more life-style, essential life skills and relate it to their actual environments. Kids really lack the reality check of life in school. For some, they just think that all the mod-cons comes automaticlaly until they suddenly are no longer there. When children, who ran away find themselves in the streets, exposed to the dangers, then it is too late to turn the clock back.

It certainly is too late for Shamima.

Yes, they get taught the three r’s but some just can’t relate it to how their life evolves around their home and how their home keeps them safe and is a springboard to their own lives later in a civilised society.

I must admit it is hard for kids to learn what’s right or wrong if they watch programs like East Enders. Their storylines evolve all around how families commit crimes together. I stopped watching that now.

I allow my kids to use as much online as they like but they also then need to choose, which context is useful towards those A-levels and university later. Sixth form schools and universities use iPads, phones, tablets for course delivery and online learning. We just can’t forbit the children to go online.

The goal setting must come from the children as well as fom the adults. If a child doesn’t care about their own future, then they are either depressed or just cannot be helped. Today a child can be prosecuted aged 10 for murder; a 15 year old must know what they are doing.

I don’t agree with Janet Street-Porter about her just being groomed and she had no choice to resist the grooming.

Though as a society we tend not to accept failure how ever difficult a problem is with children.
